The Music Ministry provides beauty, joy, comfort, inspiration, and musical prayer for our communal liturgies, and various parish celebrations.
The mission of Holy Trinity Music Ministry is to enhance liturgical singing, as we unite our voices with the congregation at parish Masses and prayer services. Holy Trinity musicians and singers generously share their musical gifts with our parish community. They maintain a commitment to the established schedule of rehearsals, liturgies, and a willingness to grow musically and spiritually. Our singers and instrumentalists endeavor to exercise their ministry with evident faith and participate in the entire liturgical celebrations, recognizing that they are servants of the Liturgy and members of the gathered assembly.
Holy Trinity enjoys a vibrant and comprehensive music ministry. We draw upon the entire treasury of Catholic music from ancient chant to contemporary worship songs.
